FULL TIME Celtic only stood up a bit on the final 10 minutes, but were denied by some Ben Williams' saves. Hibernian didn't suffer a lot to maintain their narrow lead and could have won by a bigger margin if Deegan had been more inspired. Wanyama, Hooper and Kayal tried

Celtic were on the driving seat during the whole match as St Mirren barely threated Forster. However, they again showed some problems to translate their possession into goals. Wanyama's goal brought some calm to the home fans, but as the minutes passed impatience went back to them as the team failed to bring the game to bed. Hooper made it two seven minutes before the final whistle, but it was still an unimpressive showing by a Celtic side who lacks creativity to beat teams that are miles away from them in terms of quality. St Mirren haven't scored against Celtic since 2010, and today they didn't look like breaking that record as they defended their goal while they hoped for a break to equalise the game. Celtic are now four points above Motherwell with a game in hand. A good position to be in just before the Christmas' run of games. Photo source: BBC Sport/SNS

Neil Lennon's men slightly dominated during the first half but got one ahead with Brown's goal. They showed their skills during the second half to easily brush off Killie. Ledley and Samaras ended good passing build ups to kill the game. Sheridan scored just before the final whistle to give the home fans something to cheer on. The unanswered question now is: can Celtic show the same approach and hunger at home?

FINAL: Cruel final for Celtic after they took a 0-2 lead with 10 minutes to go. The 3 points looked on their way to Glasgow but Dundee United fought back to claim a point. Mackay-Steven and Efe Ambrose's own goal gave the home side a fine end of the game
SUMMARY Celtic didn't have lots of work to do during the second half after their clear lead at half time, if St Johnstone had any chance, the substitute Commons turned it off with a well taken penalty. Mulgrew rounded Celtic's performance with a sweet left-footed shot from inside the area.
SUMMARY One of the most one sided away matches in the SPL for a long time. Pretty similar to the match at Inverness a few weeks ago, however, Celtic didn't let any cheap late goals this time. Hooper, Ambrose, Wanyama (2) and Tony Watt were the scorers in a great
